Hi. My ALT number was slightly elevated in November 2013 (57) and when retested a month later it was 97. My PCP referred me onto a liver specialist and I had a slew of bloodwork done and a Ultrasound. This was in late February. My ALT number is now 103.
My ultrasound was fine and showed nothing abnormal and the rest of my bloodwork was all within the ranges. All Hep tests were negative. The nurse practitioner stated I was the “picture of health”.
I drink about 0-5 drink a month, don’t smoke. I’m 5’8 and 187 pounds.
Next week I am have a biopsy of my liver done.
While on one level I am grateful my test results were good minus the AKT number I am terrified that there is some ticking time bomb that is causing my ALT numbers to be high.
In this scenario what would the Biopsy being looking for? Thanks.
